Viewers can watch ABS-CBN’s own version of vice presidential debate dubbed as ‘Harapan ng Bise’ live streaming online on April 17.
Sunday’s debate will be the second time the vice presidential candidates are on stage at the same time. This time it’s not officially organized by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC). The debate will only include four candidates: Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, Sen. Chiz Escudero, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, and Leni Robredo. ABS-CBN said Sens. Gringo Honasan and Bongbong Marcos could not make it to the debate due to a scheduling conflict.
The debate can be seen in the Philippines on ABS-CBN from 5:30 p.m. It will also be available for live streaming video (details below).
ABS-CBN Entertainment reported that it will be moderated by seasoned broadcast journalists Alvin Elchico and Lynda Jumilla and will be simulcast live coverage on ANC, DZMM TeleRadyo, and The Filipino Channel.
Candidates are expected to talk about their platforms and stand on important issues. They will go through several rounds of debate on the most urgent national concerns based on a Pulse Asia survey, test each other’s opinions, and will be grilled by panelists composed of broadcast journalist Tina Monzon-Palma and political analysts Edna Co and Julio Teehankee.
